Jack White Plays Instrumental Role in Aid to Flood Victims
Jack White continues to raise money for Nashville flood victims.
The rocker and his Music City-based company, Third Man Records, are auctioning a genuine, one-of-a-kind red-and-white Ludwig Musser marimba which was custom made for the White Stripes and used during the band's 2005-2006 tour. The marimba was used in concerts around the world including Mexico, Panama, Colombia, Brazil, Latvia, Poland, Russia, New Zealand and elsewhere. Since it was last used on March 9, 2006 in Osaka, Japan, the marimba has been stored in Nashville in its custom red-white-and-black custom flight case.
All proceeds from this auction will go to the Nashville Chapter of the American Red Cross.
Jack, who founded the White Stripes and his other current bands The Dead Weather and The Raconteurs, and produced Loretta Lynn's 2004 Grammy-winning album, 'Van Lear Rose,' has raised other money to aid flood victims. He and Third Man Records donated all sales made on May 8 at their Nashville-based record store to the Nashville flood relief. Jack also joined Hands on Nashville to aid in clean up.
To bid on the marimba, go to the auction website by May 24.
